Over the last few years, there has been a very important change in the sensitivity and awareness of the harm of tobacco smoke, first in indoor spaces, and nowadays in outdoor spaces, in which anyone wants to be able to enjoy breathing clean air, without tobacco smoke, especially when you are with children, who in no case should be exposed to tobacco smoke, that is, in no case should they be passive smokers. When you go to the beach, what do you like to breath? Honestly, do you like breathing the tobacco smoke from the umbrella next to you?

The Smoke-free beaches movement has had hundreds of thousands of supports in Spain, as a result there are dozens of beaches without tobacco smoke, such as the 141 in Galicia, as well as the several that exist in Murcia, Asturias, Andalusia, in the Balearic Islands and Canary Islands.

Furthermore, in the Vigo city council (Galicia), 80% of the citizens who participated in a consultation which proposed Samil Beach as smoke-free, one of the most emblematic of Galicia and Spain,  and it was declared a smoke-free beach, and obtained overwhelming support from the 77% of the neighbors:

And finally, the Commission for the Environment, Water and Territorial Planning of the Valencian Corts unanimously approved, urging the Valencian Government  to create a Smoke-free Beaches Network, with an educational objective and non-sanctioning vocation, which councils can voluntarily adhere.  Smoke-free beaches contribute to denormalize tobacco consumption reduce environmental pollution and promote healthy lifestyle habits and respect for the environment, and of course reinforces the concept of sustainable tourism.

And the Smoke-free beaches are also a success in the Valencian Community, as happened in the summer of 2019 with the Cala Retor in Oropesa. Thousands of families and citizens enjoyed:

We want to request that Carabassí beach continue to be the wonderful and spectacular place that it is, but even better, now without tobacco smoke and without cigarette butts, so those of us on the beach would not have to unintentionally breathe tobacco smoke, and we avoid that the butts stay in the sand, and from it to the sea, when they seriously pollute the water (50 liters each butt) and poison the marine fauna, since they take more than 10 years to degrade and contaminate tens of liters of water.

If you want not to smoke unintentionally on the beach, avoid to be a passive smoker, neither you or your children, if you do not want to step on more butts and that your children play with them, please sign and this petition to request to our Elche Mayor, Carlos González Serna, asking to elevate to the Plenary session of the Elche City Council, a proposal to declare Carabassí beach a space smoke-free and cigarette butts-free.

Thank you!!
